OBJECTIVES Observational and experimental studies suggest that antibiotic use close to administration of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) can negatively affect tumor response and patient survival, due to microbiome dysbiosis and the resultant suppression of host immune response against neoplastic cells. METHODS We conducted a systematic search of PUBMED and EMBASE for studies published between 1/1/17 and 6/1/20, evaluating the association between antibiotic use and clinical outcomes in cancer ...

Antibiotic (ATB) use seems to negatively affect the outcomes of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs). The aim of this review is to clarify whether ATB use influences the efficacy of ICI treatment in cancer patients. Databases of MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Library were searched for reports published in English between January 2007 and December 2019. We included studies that compared the outcomes of ATB use and no-ATB use in cancer patients using ICIs. Two reviewers independently selected eligib...

Abstract The immune checkpoint inhibitors, a class of drugs able to block immune suppressive pathways in order to prime an anticancer immunity, revolutionized standard of care in platinum-refractory recurrent and/or metastatic head and neck carcinoma (R/M HNSCC). The PD-1/ PD-L1 axis is involved in the genesis, maintenance and progression of HNSCC and represents the target of checkpoint inhibitors. HNSCC is an immunosuppressive disease with a high inflammatory component in tumor microenvironment...
